Sagrad invites you to participate in AFTU development.
We would like to know more about your interest and plans to use AFTU technology in your programs.
We have a roadmap to substantially reduce size, weight, and power for AFTU products, and we want to know your requirements.
Register with us today to assure that you receive the latest information from Sagrad and have the opportunity to influence our future products.
Our products meet the Range Commanders Council’s Flight Termination Systems Commonality Standard – RCC 319-14. Sagrad offers both Engineering Development and Flight Units with and without internal GPS.
Our current AFTU products have completed design qualification and product qualification to meet RCC 319-14. Sagrad began flight qualification testing of three NASA/Sagrad test articles on August 10, 2018.
In mid-2017, the Committee on Armed Services directed the Secretary of the Air Force and NASA to prepare a recommendation for an Autonomous Flight Safety and Termination System. In April, the Secretary responded with a plan.
Future AFTU products will be determined by customer specifications and your input. We forsee three additional phases where we extend the current AFTU architecture to improve size, weight and manufacturability.
